Amuse – Bouche

(ah-myuz boosh) Little bites of food to please the mouth, arouse the senses of the palate and whet your appetite.

amouse bouche 

An amuse-bouche [a.myz.buʃ] is a single, bite-sized hors d’oeuvre. Amuse-bouche are different from appetizers in that they are not ordered from a menu by patrons, but, when served, are according to the chef's selection alone. These, often accompanied by a complementing wine, are served as an excitement of taste buds to both prepare the guest for the meal and to offer a glimpse into the chef's approach to cooking.

The term is French, literally translated to "mouth amuser", for bouche means mouth and amuser is "to amuse" or "to please".
